View Event Details

Our regular Rapid Translational Incubator (RTI) webinars and events signpost Greater Manchester researchers to local support for setting up and running clinical trials and studies. Each month we explore different topics and common problems, to try offer solutions through a peer support network.

Choosing the most appropriate study design is one of the most important aspects to consider when developing a clinical trial or study. It is rarely possible to rescue a poorly designed study.

In this webinar, Chris Sutton will talk about the main aspects to consider for a robust study design and when you might involve a CTU in your proposed study or trial.
